It seems that President Trump and his legal team learned of Flynn’s guilty plea only this morning.

President Trump specifically asked then FBI director James Comey to drop his investigation into Flynn. When Comey refused, the president fired him.

It is important to note that the Flynn lied to the FBI while still working in the White House as the National Security Advisor. This will make it harder for the administration to distance themselves, as they did with the Papadopoulos and Manafort.

Regardless, CNN reports that the president is trying to play off the charge by saying that everyone lies in Washington.

Which might work, because it seems the standard of ethics in D.C. have changed since Bill Clinton was president in the 1990s.

Depending on the nature and extent of Flynn’s cooperation with the special counsel’s investigation, we may see more information come forth that will lead to additional indictments of those within the White House administration.
